IPL 2020: MI, DC, SRH, RCB – Which team has the highest possibility of winning the IPL 2020?

IPL 2020 has been a historic season so far. Nail-bitting thrillers, super overs, injuries, controversies, and records, you name it! It has been everything the fans needed during these tough times caused by the pandemic.

It took us all the 56 league games to finally get to know which four teams will make into the playoffs. Finally, the playoffs and final of IPL 2020 will be played from 5th November to 10th November in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Qualifier 1 will be held in Dubai on 5th November, followed by the Eliminator (6th November) and Qualifier 2 (8th November) in Abu Dhabi. The final will be held on 10th November in Dubai.

Today we evaluate which team has the highest possibility of winning the IPL 2020.

Mumbai Indians

We start our list with the defending champions and table-toppers Mumbai Indians. Mumbai Indians have been nothing but phenomenal throughout the league stage with nine wins in 14 matches. Two of their losses have been in the super over and one was probably because they rested their bowlers.

They have struck a perfect combination where every player knows and executes his roles. Therefore despite the withdrawal of Lasith Malinga and the injury of skipper Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan, they have been able to sustain their winning spree.

The comeback of Rohit Sharma will add more stability to the already strong MI lineup. Quinton De Kock, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan have been in sublime form. Hardik Pandya and Kieron Pollard have been finishing the inning really well. Not to forget, three of their bowlers are in the list of top 10 highest wicket-takers of the season.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals started the league phase really well, however, ended up losing their way mid-way. Regardless, they’re an extremely dangerous side. Shikhar Dhawan found some form in their last game, however, will have to show consistency. Prithvi Shaw will also have to pull his socks up and perform or DC may even replace him with Ajinkya Rahane who scored a solid fifty in their last game.

Skipper Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, and Marcus Stoinis will have to show consistency which they displayed in the earlier phase of the tournament. Their bowling has been phenomenal with Kagiso Rabada being the highest wicket-taker and Anrich Nortje being among the wickets as well.

Royal Challengers Bangalore

RCB has one of the most stable combinations of all teams this season as well. However, they’ll have to improve their strike rate especially in the earlier overs and make use of the powerplay. AB de Villers has been in great form and has been scoring really important runs.

Virat Kohli’s poor form will also be a concern for RCB. Also, their pace bowling has failed to achieve some consistency. The injury of Navdeep Saini and now even Chris Morris can be a serious issue for them. They’ve tried Dale Steyn and Isuru Udana but have turned out to be extremely expensive.

Sunrisers Hyderabad

SRH would be extremely proud of their win over the Delhi Capitals. Skipper Warner scored a brilliant fifty and Wriddhiman Saha justified his selection over Johnny Bairstow by scoring two back to back fifties.

Their lower middle-order namely Samad and Priyam Garg should take responsibility as well. Their lack of form puts unnecessary pressure on David Warner, Manish Pandey, and Vijay Shankar.

Their bowling, however, has been great. Jason Holder has been a breath of fresh air for them. Rashid Khan has been picking up timely wickets. Sandeep Sharma and Natarajan have been doing their respective roles.

Which team has the highest possibility to win the IPL?

MUMBAI INDIANS! MI and SRH are the only teams who are entering the playoffs with some momentum. However, for SRH, it’ll be difficult as they’ll have to win 2 matches before even getting to the finals. Mumbai, on the other hand, has been there and done that! Therefore, Mumbai Indians definitely have the highest possibility to take the cup home.
